Thomas Durkin After too many years without new Bon Mots material, they grace us with this excellent album! All I could hope for, and a definite positive logical progression from their previous masterpiece, 40 Days & 40 Nights with... Hope that the band keeps going, and releases more great music and playing great shows.

about

The Bon Mots Chicago, Illinois

SPIN: Bon Mots are one of the most promising new bands out there. A-

JIM DEROGATIS: Jangly psychedelic/power-pop draws on Byrds and Zombies but rises to the top of this always-overcrowded genre by virtue of strong songwriting, swirling production.

AMPLIFIER: Understated irony frequently underscores bittersweet melodies.

ALL MUSIC GUIDE: Bon Mots just may be Chicago's best-kept secret.

Track Name: Pulling the Veil
Pulling the Veil

Pull back the veil
That's driving you blind
Reveal the pieces
That you didn't want to find

I didn't come here
I'm not leaving
You're not on my mind
It's a sorry situation
Traveling back in time

Come off the rails
You keep walking a line
Janus facing up ahead
And back at the same time

I didn't come here
I'm not leaving
You're not on my mind
It's a sorry situation
Traveling back in time

The veil's concealing
Unwanted feelings
This machine is peeling back the time

Clocks all fail
Gears all grind
The ground is splintered
And the figures left behind

I didn't come here
I'm not leaving
You're not on my mind
It's a sorry situation
Traveling back in time

The veil's concealing
Unwanted feelings
This machine is peeling back the time

The veil's revealing
Unwanted feelings
This machine is peeling back the time

I didn't come here
I'm not leaving
Didn't come here
I'm not leaving and
You're not on my mind
Track Name: Granted
Granted

Somebody's gonna take you all for granted
Somebody's gonna take you down
And just when you think you can't stand it
I'll be around

You know you're gonna make it

Surround
Yeah you know you're gonna make it
Surround

Somebody's gonna take you all for granted
Somebody's gonna wear your crown
And just when you think you can't stand it
I'll be around

I know you're gonna make it

Surround
Yeah you're gonna have to make it
Surround

Somebody's gonna take you all for granted
Somebody's gonna bring you down
And just when you think you can't stand it
I'll be around

I know you're gonna make it

I surround
I know you're gonna make it
Surround

I surround
And I know you're gonna make it
I'll surround
Track Name: Under Pavement
Under Pavement

Sitting in the road
Counting up the bleaching bones
Listening to the pavement
Buckle on your heavy load

Looking for a vanishing point
Somewhere at the edge of your sight
Everything you know is going
Under the knife

I'm gonna get
Just what I always wanted
Have to admit
I'm feeling a little bit haunted

Cactus in the cold
Blooming on the moonlight glow
Underneath the pavement
Roots are spreading out
And they grow

Looking for a place to entwine
Sending signals spine to spine
Everything they know
Sun sand and sky

I'm gonna get
Just what I always wanted
Have to admit
That I'm feeling a little bit haunted

Looking down the road
Wind is blowing silver and gold
Listening to the pavement
Blister up beneath your soul

I'm gonna get
Just what I always wanted
Have to admit
That I'm feeling a little bit haunted
Track Name: Rome's Burning
Rome's Burning

Coming over yeah, right on time
Check my rabbit fur and four bags of wine
Your old guitar is like a friend of mine
Back in the grotto where we all feel fine

The girls are smoking, won't you light that fire
Work in the morning? Have you lost your mind?
Say Mister Junior won't you pass that pipe?
Tell the boss we ain't the working kind

Rome's burning
Yeah but we don't mind
Called the cops
But we're hard to find
Back in the grotto
Kicking back in style
World's broken
So we got all the time

Ain't leaving till I see the light
Creeping through at the end of the night
EQ and Lou are sounding nice and tight
Back in the garden where we all feel all right

Rome's burning
Yeah but we don't mind
Called the cops
But we're hard to find
Back in the grotto
Kicking back in style
World's broken
So we got all the time

Jumped the fence back by the trees
Skin's crawling on its hands and knees
Andy's looking for his basement keys
Shaking loose messing with the bees

Rome's burning
Yeah but we don't mind
Called the cops
But we're hard to find
Back in the grotto
Kicking back in style
World's broken
So we got all the time
